   Dresden 

 

 

 

Dresden, with its more than 500,000 inhabitants is the capital of the Free State of Saxony and centre.

The city is very beautifully situated at the Elbe river, and so it is also called "Florence on the Elbe". Hard to believe that in the second World War more than 60% of the buildings were destroyed.
Today, Dresden is a pulsate place with a magnificent city centre.
I was here several times due to my job and I like it very well always coming here again.

My favourite here is the historic Old Town.A walk along Brühl´s Terrace is great and you have a magnificent view to the opposite riverbanks of the Elbe.

The old town is always an experience for me. All interesting places like Zwinger, Semper Opera, the Royal Palace, and the famouse churches  are very close together and you can reach all these impressive buildings within a walking distance. Another highlight in the heart of this buildings is the Princes wall, a 100-foot wall frieze of Meissen porcelain, which represents all the ruling princes.

If there is nice weather, you should definitely take a round trip by boat on the Elbe, in a more than  1 ½ hours you pass  vineyards and castles till you arrive the blue bridge. On this trip you can enjoy the great scenery of the landscape.
